Several concerned parents in our district have reached out to let me know that a basketball coach who has been training several of our Roslyn students outside of school has tested positive. If your child participated in this training and was in close contact with this coach (10 minutes or longer inside, without precautions such as masks and social distancing) I ask that you keep your child home, get your family tested, and observe quarantine guidelines.
We do not want this case, which has the potential to be a superspreader event, to impact our schools in any way. We have worked very hard to be able to offer in-person learning, and would be devastated if a factor outside of our control put our schools at risk.
Cases in our community are rising. The remainder of the winter months will be challenging. Now is the time to remain vigilant and work together. If your child is experiencing any hint of a symptom, please keep them home until you know for sure that they are healthy.
None of us is as powerful as ALL of us. Let's stick together and do what's right for everyone. Brighter days are ahead, we just have to hang in there a little longer.
